the final push

i've been really into drawing 2x2 inch squares of doodles to brainstorm compositions. so little pressure in 2 inches, but big impact of overall feel. and it's so easy to fill quick... have fun and try! then scan & fill colors {mine are a lil' 1/2 assed, but good for gen idea}.
i have less than 2 weeks left of my first semester of school for illustration! may 6 we will parteee! kate wc & i have already made a date for tamarind margaritas at the little boabab. yippee!
what have i learned? me oh my. i can't wait to really reflect on that. as if there's going to be a magic point when my life slows down and i'll be able to fully process. maybe when i'm eighty two {and have finally paid off my student loans}. hee.
paper due tomorrow. blah blah.
illo sketch too. our teacher said he was dissapointed in our previous sketches so this one has to be a good. my classmate who re-took the class for fun said that he said that last year too, and that it's a "teaching tool". anyhow, it is motivating and paralyzing, simultaneously. plus i have cramps... it is so so so telling when i feel insecure about my art/ PMS are aligned. whoa! sorry if that's a little toooo much info, but it is so real. i need to put a big sign in my studio- "YOU ARE PMSing your art does not totally suck- check back in a week".
i miss my BFF today. where is she?

I REALLY like that picture!! So cute...I love the idea of one big picture made up of many small ones.
It is so crazy that you and Bekah are both back in school. I don't know how you guys do it...but just get through these few weeks and it will be time for fun!

You have a riveting web log and undoubtedly
must have atypical & quiescent potential for
your intended readership. May I suggest that
you do everything in your power to honor
your Designer/Architect as well as your audience.
Please remember to never restrict anyone's
opportunities for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
